As ridiculous as it may sound, the Fandango Revolution has kicked in although how long it will last remains to be seen.
The strong online support has catapulted the song to the top charts on iTunes in the US, UK, and Canada as well on Amazon. WWE has made a ton of money with purchases of the song and hopefully, the composer/producer of the song Jim Johnston is receiving some kind of royalties or a pay bump for his effort.
Four days after International fans put the artist formerly known as Johnny Curtis on the map with their sing alongs, it’s now in WWE’s hands to give him the chance and up to him to take the ball and run with it.
In the meantime, a funny exchange on Twitter between a fan of England Premier League club Everton (football/soccer) and Fandango resulted in a reply from the @Everton account.
Fandango asked “Who’s @everton ever beat?” saying he never even heard of them, adding “Hockey team?” at the end while replying to a fan’s question.
The official Twitter account of Everton replied to Fandango, telling him that they have a rich history and the club would be happy to welcome him to their home – Goodison Park – to tell him more and “maybe even play your theme song.”
A fan quickly replied back telling @Everton that they didn’t say that a few hours ago when they refused to play his song when they were requested to do so for tomorrow.
“To clarify, we won’t be playing it in the stadium tomorrow,” Everton said. HAH!
Fans in New Jersey sang the song in the arena, in the hallways of the IZOD Center, in the parking lot, on the buses, on the train, and even honking their cars in rhythm with the song. It was a crazy sight indeed, and you can watch the different ways fans tackled the song in our special Fandango fans playlist below.
